Big Spring rebounded from last weekâ€™s loss to Midland Christian in dramatic fashion Friday as the Steers (2-1) pummeled San Angelo Lake View 48-0 in front of an energetic homecoming crowd to earn their second shutout in three games.
With freshman power back Preston Alexander sidelined with a foot injury, it was up to junior Hunter Hill and senior Jahari Vanover to assist quarterback Tobyn Tannehill from the backfield.
STANTON â€” The Martin County Buffaloes came out on top Friday as they battled the Howard County Buffaloes. Stanton â€” who suffered a loss last year at the hands of Forsan â€” evened the score as SHS dominated FHS 35-6.
The depth and physicality on display by Stanton (2-1) was more intense than Forsan (2-1) had seen in its first two outings.
COLORADO CITY â€” Coahoma dropped to 0-3 for the season Friday after a 45-8 loss on the road to Colorado City, but when youâ€™re dealing with a team as young as CHS Head Coach Trey Gardner, you have to find the silver linings and build upon them.
One aspect of the game Gardnerâ€™s Bulldogs usually shine in is fortitude. Heart is rarely an issue for Coahoma teams and according to Gardner, it was on display Friday despite the lopsided final score.
